Mema’s Pickles

As I have mentioned I have cucumbers coming from every direction! I wanted to use some befor they went bad so I busted out Mema’s Pickle Recipe, these are just delish and I love the fact that as a little girl every meal I can remember included a relish tray and these pickles were always the star of the plate.

Slice your cucumbers (I used 8) then dice 1 large sweet onion. Sprinkle well with salt and place in colander to drain excess water. Top with ice cubes. Allow to drain at least 3 hrs. (You will NOT believe the amount of water that comes out of them!)

Then pack in your sterilized jars.


2 1/2 cups sugar

2 1/2 cups apple cider vinegar

1 tsp curry powder

1 tsp celery salt

1 tsp celery seed

1 T mustard seed

Mix everything and bring to a boil. Pour over packed cucumbers and allow to cool. P1010226

Place in fridge and enjoy!
